Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert told Fox News viewers today that Donald Trump’s hideous “Grab them by the p***y” comments are no biggie because “if you’re Bill Clinton’s big buddy like he was at one time, you’re gonna talk like Bill Clinton.”
Gohmert visited Fox & Friends this morning to deliver a pep talk for Republicans who haven't yet flown from Donald Trump’s sinking ship of a presidential candidacy. In particular, Gohmert was asked about Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will no longer campaign for Trump but will focus, instead, on keeping the majority in Congress.
The latest Republican turmoil over its presidential candidate came in the wake of the hideous Trump tape which showed him bragging, in 2005, about having “moved on” a married woman “like a bitch” would, but failing. Normally, Trump said, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. …”Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”
Host Steve Doocy began the interview by saying about Ryan’s defection, “It sounds like he’s abandoning the Trump ship. How did you interpret what he said?
Gohmert is still very much on the Trump ship.
GOHMERT: Anybody thinks that oh, we can just worry about a President Hillary and we’ll rein her in – we haven’t reined in the outrageous conduct in this administration, it’s not gonna happen in the next.
Doocy didn’t even try to seem impartial. He murmured his agreement as Gohmert spoke. Doocy kept on interjecting approval as Gohmert went on to complain about all the terrible people who have not been reined in during the Obama administration – while they each ignored Trump’s decades of brushes with the law, associations with the mafia and accusations of fraud.
Then Gohmert came up with his ridiculous justification for Trump’s lewdness and vulagarity:
GOHMERT: Trump has said some things that are very vile back when he was supporting people like Bill Clinton. But if you’re Bill Clinton’s big buddy like he was at one time, you’re gonna talk like Bill Clinton and I think we need to forgive him for talking like big Democrats like Clinton and other foulmouthed people.
Now he’s a Republican. James Dobson tells me he’s become a Christian. And so, look, we forgive him for the past because he’s asked for it. But I’m tellin’ you what: If Hillary is in there – I mean, we see again with these Wikileaks that she lies…
Doocy did not offer any challenge. Instead, he interrupted as Gohmert started in on Clinton again, to get out a more explicitly pro-Trump message:
DOOCY: Congressman, the Republicans’ message, all along, for the most part has been, “OK, Donald Trump has not been perfect. We might disagree with parts of him, but he’s better than she is because the next president’s gonna pick the Supreme Court.”
But even that is not exactly a ringing or enthusiastic endorsement.
“We need to get on board,” Gohmert agreed. “It’s all in or it’s nothing.”

His opinions are so nutty I’m surprised that Fox doesn’t “accidentally” put an D next to his name to save them the embarrassment.
